My stock M3 rear diffuser has just been sitting around collecting dust - my car is jet black and if anyone wants it they can have it for like $40. Also wanted to note that it is at work on Ft Story.


Has anyone had experience with Renn Motorsport spacers? 10/12/15mm with lugs for $65...I just want to know they aren't crap before I pull the trigger.

Are you referencing the spacers for sale on craigslist? There's a listing for Renn spacers 10/12/15mm for $65 on craigslist in Maryland. I tried texting the dude but he never texts me back. Seems kinda shady

http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/m...041164017.html

As far as my plans, most importantly find an e90/92, until then, get stud conversion, and fit the 67s to the e46. Probably going to plasti-dip them black one I get new tires mounted. Once I get the e90/92 it'll be maintenance maintenance maintenance, then probably throw the 67s on there until I get other wheels, then a JB4, black everything out, then drop on coils.

Yup those are the spacers!

**Will also have my silver trim available soon, bear in mind I do not have the front handles/pads ...I'm not really sure what color or is called. It's not Titan shadow, and it's not brushed aluminum, it's just silver trim.

Hey guys need some input!

I have a chance to pick up some staggered miro stp3 wheels, they need a little bit of work and refinishing but it's a take it or leave it deal.

Does anyone have a pic of e46 M3 with said wheels in 19's and staggered? I currently have stock suspension on my M3 and wonder if it will looks horrible until I get coils.

I would look myself but govt machines aren't google image friendly and My phone really isn't an option.

If I get furloughed this upcoming week, I've decided im going to install a Galaxy Tab 2.

Parts List: - Trying to stay under $250 total.
Galaxy Tab 2 (8gb, wifi only)
Bezel / HVAC Relocation
OBDII Bluetooth Reader
Cigerette USB charger
Wireless Router
1TB (?) External HDD
Lots of wire, lots of clamps.

Method:
Update/Customize Tab 2 with everything
Upload music/movies onto external, convert mode to "Shareport"
Remove aux ground wire from current diy aux harness
Wire USB charger to 12v switched/ground from radio (Pin 5 & 15)
Plug audio/Charger into Galaxy Tab 2
Make fit.
--
Bolt router to trunk roof
Fabricate some sort of padded/shock resistant holding bracket for external
Tap into amp 12v switched & ground wires to power both Router and External.

Theoretically, everything should sync up just fine. I think the hardest part will be configuring a secure working network. Fortunately, since Ive already installed one USB port and an Aux input cable, half my work making the Tablet work is done.

I would seriously consider going to a solid state 500 gig or so hard drive so you have to worry less, but that might blow out your budget.

If I can find a SSD that fits into my budget, I'd go with that so I dont have to worry about shocks/physical movement. But the whole purpose of this build is to make a functional touchscreen for less than the cost of an actual unit.

Depends on when you're coming up here. I've got a bunch of stuff coming up the next few weekends so it depends.

This weekend, Laura and I are starting to look at apts (Saturday)
19th weekend is Winefest (probably Saturday)
25-28th I'll most likely be working 2nd shift (3pm-12am) all weekend
Nov 2nd is Tough Mudder in Charolette

You're best bet would be this weekend since I have Monday off (14th) or possibly rolling in that Thursday, since I will have Friday (18th) off if you have the flexibility to do that.

Also, 18" CCW's FS

Or these, 18" crazy wide CCW's FS

iPhone 5S - I just couldn't use it at my leisure like I'd wish to while in the compound.

Ended up trading my style 67's for the Miro STP-3's this weekend. All went well except for a broken lug stud which I now need to try and remove somehow...ideas?

nice trade...
the threaded portion is still stuck inside the rotor?
i guess you could try removing the rotor and turning it out on the back side, or dremel a line in it and try a flathead screw driver. assuming its not under a ton or torque.. PB blaster may be your friend.

Yeah decent trade I think. They need a little bit of work but I'll post pics when I'm done with them.

Just to verify, STP3's aren't true 3 piece wheels right? It would be easiest to redo them by taking them apart but if not then oh well
